Question about stock clutch on 99 Lude

Im looking at buying this 99 Lude and im worried about the clutch. The guy is hispanic so we have a language barrier. The car looks to be in great shape. It has 170k miles on it.

Im hoping that the clutch was already changed at some point, but how long will stock clutches last?

How can I check to see if it has been replaced?

Re: Question about stock clutch on 99 Lude

Nice. That is good news. I just figure that people these days like to do burnouts.

Im going to go look at it. I will drive it in circles to check the CV Joints. If those are bad there is a good chance he was doing some burnouts and then I would be worried about the clutch. The nice thing is that there are no after market parts on it. So maybe he just drove it regularly.

I will also do the mashing of the gas pedal at 50mph in 5th gear to see if it holds or slips.

It is nice to know that they will last that long.

Re: Question about stock clutch on 99 Lude

it entirely depends on if the previous owner(s), or other people who drove the car knew how to drive stick correctly.

if there was a lot of feathering/launching/racing/etc was done, that'll drastically reduce the clutch life.

but the 5th gear @ 50mph test will surely tell you if the clutch is slipping currently. unfortunately what it won't tell you is how long it'll last, so i could potentially start slipping like 500 miles after you buy it.

Re: Question about stock clutch on 99 Lude

Yeah you never know when they will just go out. Its 99 Lude with 170k for only $2500. It needs tag and inspection. He couldnt tell me if the T-Belt had been changed. It supposedly doesnt leak. We shall see though. The price seems really low, but it is his second car. I am stoked about having another H22 though. I used to have a 93 2dr accord with H22a. That car was a blast to drive.

Well this discussion is over.

I had to wait for 1 to go to lunch and look at it. Of course it would be selling right now. Man that sucks. I think I missed out on a great deal.
